This is a Friends (Quaker) Meeting House with the cemetery located behind it. Not one single grave has ever been purchased. Originally established in 1801 as the Newberry Preparative Meeting. In 1875 it was changed to Friends. The Meeting House has sat on three different locations on the property. The current Meeting House was built from 1871 through 1878. In 1951 the white framed building was bricked and the interior refurbished. An educational wing was also added. The Meeting House still has the pulley system in the attic that moved a partition that separated the men from the women during meetings. During worship the partition was opened for all to attend services together.
